Ill be riding a 500, but mine will stay at home. It's a driver, but not all the way across the USA kind of driver.

Just got the last non smoking king suite showing at the Days Inn for Thursday to Sunday.  yesnod Currently showing 5 regular smoking rooms left.

One thing that ticked me off. First logging into Days Inn and choosing Thur arrival to Monday check out it came up that regular rooms would average $69/night and suites where $104. I then changed to Sunday check out, hit refresh and rooms suddenly became $93 and $133/night. Adding the day back to Monday and hitting refresh..still the higher prices.  shruggy

Oh well, where are people staying in Atlanta that are doing the speedway on Thursday???

You driving the car in Bryan or trailering?

Figured we'd stay Wednesday night in Atlanta near the Speedway, do the track fun and then high tail it to Alexandria City before 6PM check in cut off to get checked in, the car back out of the trailer and figure out where to park my truck / trailer. Did they use the Walmart Superstore parking lot last time or??

We are driving down from Seattle like we did in 1999......we stayed about 40 miles south of Birmingham that year, so I have no info about trailer parking or Walmart store info

Okay thanks! We're hauling, from Ontario Canada, just to be safe. Figuring after about 14 years since I've plated her, I'll be doing good to get the car ready for some short drives let alone the 1200 miles each way to Dega!

Great road trip Bryan! Presume with a group of cars so you have "back up" if need be. Just the wife and I aren't so daring.

BTW.. anyone know if my Son and d-in-law that will be there at Talladega all weekend camping and race watching will be able to get to us and into the car with the wife and I for the Talladega laps?  shruggy

The track lap meet up is outside the backstretch at the entry to turn 3.      They are building a new tunnel there right now.     I expect someone will be able to walk through there from the infield.    If they have seats in the front grandstands, it is a long walk.

Nothing has been announced for Atlanta hotels, but last time, it was in the McDonough area.  That's about 13 miles from the track.

I MAY have a friend to haul my car.  As a "shop" teacher i don't get any time for something like this during the school year so I have to take sick time.  I would like to know, so I can plan, what time does the Atlanta lap event start and what time do the Talladega laps end?

Dunno on the Atlanta laps yet.    Plan on being there in the morning.

The parade laps at Talladega are over with by noon.      About the time the race starts, the traffic pattern of all lanes coming into the track reverts back to normal and you can leave and get on the interstate.  Race start time will be determined by TV, but should be about a 1 PM start.     Once the race starts, there is no problem leaving.    If you have not seen a race at Talladega,  I would encourage you to do so.
